Dimension is running extremely slow

I am on a new iMac with the following specs:
OS: Catalina

Display: 5k

Processor: 3.7 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i5

Memory: 16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4
Graphics: Radeon Pro 580X 8 GB

 

and Adobe Dimension is crawling. 

 

Issues:

1_ I am mainly using custom Substance materials and it's a pain to not being able to save them in the Substance material library within Dimension. Secondly, you are not able to save the parameter settings so they can be easily applied to any components that need them or future projects. Is that on the feature request list?


2_ Every time I apply (drag and drop) the Substance texture onto the surface of my 3D model it takes forever. I have no other programs open other than a chrome window with a few tabs and my font program. Usually, it doesn't even compute on the first drag and drop, only on the second and only if you save the file in between.

 

Any insight on these things? Thanks!

Concorning first point:

Please use https://feedback.adobedimension.com/forums/552559-adobe-dimension-feature-requests this is the best place to send us feature requests. Your contributions can help us shape the future of DImension

 

Cconserning second point it dificult to say what is the reason. That can depends also on 3d object complexity or mesh system.

Thanks, yes will enter this to feature requests for sure!
The model is fairly simple (a desk), weighs 1MB. Added Substance custom materials in total weigh 90MB. My question would be as to why the Dimension source file would amount to 6.5 GB (?!). As per Adobe specialist support this high of a file size is not supported (and really I don't understand why it would ever become that high in the first place?).

It seems to me as if Dimension is not handling the custom material application properly:

You can't save settings which forces the user to drop the same material again onto another surface and perhaps each time that happens Dimension calculates that as a separate file instead of drawing information from the same source?
